A50 Closures – 5th – 7th October 2018

Dear All

The Parish Council has been advised of the following closures on the A50:

Eastbound only: full closure from 8pm on Friday, October 5th to midnight, Saturday, October 6th (28 hours). Westbound carriageway open;

Westbound only: Lane 1 closed from 1am to 8am on Sunday October 7th for traffic management work. Eastbound carriageway open;

Westbound only: Lane 1 closed from 8am to 8pm on Sunday October 7th for removal of the south side foundations. Eastbound carriageway open;

Westbound only: full closure from 8pm on Sunday, October 7th to 5.30am on Monday, October 8th for traffic management work. Eastbound carriageway open.

Full closures will be between the A521 roundabout at Blythe Bridge and the B5030 roundabout at Uttoxeter.

When a carriageway is completely closed the diversion route will be the same for vehicles travelling in both directions. From the east, traffic will be diverted northwards from the A50 at Uttoxeter on to the B5030 for a few hundred yards to the roundabout with the A518. Traffic will turn right there, cross back over the A50 along The Dove Way and continue on the A518 clockwise around Uttoxeter and follow the road towards Stafford. Vehicles will then follow the A51 and A34 towards Stoke-on-Trent, before joining the A500 and then the A50 to Blythe Bridge. The route is reversed from the west.
